    Macro touch recorder apps (names required)
    « on: February 18, 2017, 07:42:12 AM »
    Hello,

    I would appreciate very much if you could please provide me some apps (just the names) to record actions including touch commands on a Smartphone. I'm looking for an app that doesnt need root access (android), nor be jailbroken (iOS).

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Cheers,
    Burton

    Curious what you need to automate for a smartphone and without root access. Something of the such could be used in many negative ways... curious of a positive use for this?

      Why should a macro app that doesnt require root access be more dangerous than an app that requires root access but is freely available on the internet?

      Without root access would be more dangerous because it doesnt require elevated privileges to carry out its task. So it could run and carry out whatever with lesser privileges, and simulating someone tapping their fingers in places automated with a macro can delete information for example without root privileges needed :) Thats Why  ::)

      So what do you need a macro for that has a legal and non malicious use? (intent required) :)

        The aim of the macro is to save work and time by implementing a single instruction that expands automatically into a set of instructions performing a particular task.  ::)

        If you dont have such a proposal or solution, then please just say so. If you do have a proposal for such a tool thats available (or anyone else here), then I would gladly go closer into stating what my intentions are.

        Fair answer.
        There are both free and paid Apps that do a kind of macrofor Android. For Windows it was/is called Auto Key. So you look for 'auto key android' in Google play and find some results.
        Here is one:

        HiroMacro is available on Android devices with auto-touch macro.
